Golf

Dooks Golf Club. On the second tier of courses in Ireland's southwest, Dooks doesn't quite measure up to the world-class clubs. It is, nonetheless, a completely worthwhile day of golf if you're touring the area, and it boasts spectacular scenery, including views of the majestic Magillacuddy's Reeks. Built in the old tradition of seaside links, it's shorter and a bit gentler, although the greens are small and tricky. Glenbeigh, Co. Kerry. 066/976–8205. www.dooks.com. Fees: Oct.–Mar. €79, Apr.–Sept. €45. 18 holes. Yardage: 6,586. Par 71. Caddies, caddy carts, buggies, club rental, catering. Visitors: weekdays.
